Biblical Jihad

1396/8/2 | 04:25
  In the Zionist-controlled world, all terrorist false flags are boxed in Jihad by Muslims without even knowing the real meaning of Jihad in Islamic Shari’ah – challenging all acts of oppression.   This lie is kept alive by Zionist Jewish and Christian preachers, politicians and mainstream media to benefit of the Zionist entity – despite FBI report blamed Muslim extremists for carrying 6% of terrorist activities as compared to Jewish (7%) and the rest by Christians.   Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, ...

Deadliest shooting: Why did US always shy to accept terrorism within society?

1396/7/13 | 04:25
  America suffered one of the deadliest shootings in history, with 59 dead in Las Vegas.   American authorities have shied away from calling the violence an act of terrorism, stating that it is too soon to gauge the culprit’s motives. This incident of white violence is a series of many attacks by non-Muslims and white supremacists where the forces-that-be have distanced from using the word terrorist and have refused to call a spade a spade.   What is unsettling about this is that attacks by Muslim or immigrant population ...

‘The military plan to wipe out all Muslims in Myanmar’

1396/7/8 | 04:25
  This village is a Muslim-free zone,” reads a sign hanging at the entrance to a village in an area of Myanmar outside Rakhine state.    The orders are directed at the country’s Rohingya population, an ethnic group of around 1.3 million that live mainly in Rakhine and who have been described as the “world’s most persecuted minority”.   It’s not difficult to see why. Since 1992 the Burmese government has imposed heavy restrictions on the Rohingyas. If they want to travel from one town to the other they have to ...

Bangladesh offers land to shelter Rohingya Muslims fleeing Myanmar

1396/6/21 | 04:25
  Bangladesh has agreed to free land for a new camp to shelter some of the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims who have fled recent violence in Myanmar, an official said Monday.   The new camp will help relieve some pressure on existing settlements in the Bangladeshi border district of Cox's Bazar, where 313,000 have arrived since Aug. 25, according to the United Nations.   "The two refugees camps we are in are beyond overcrowded," said U.N. refugee agency spokeswoman Vivian Tan.   Other new arrivals were being ...

Muslims in Iran, worldwide celebrate Eid al-Adha

1396/6/10 | 04:25
Muslims in Iran and across the globe are celebrating Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice), an important festival on the Islamic calendar which marks the climax of the annual Hajj pilgrimage. During the festivities, which fell on Friday this year, Muslims pay tribute to Prophet Ibrahim’s submission to the divine order of sacrificing his son. Trying to perform the act of ultimate abnegation, Ibrahim, however, was sent a sheep through Archangel Gabriel to sacrifice instead. Ibrahim’s obedience thus helped him pass the supreme test of subservience ...

‘Kill Muslims with bullets dipped in pig's blood’

1396/5/27 | 04:25
  US President Donald Trump has suggested that some Muslims should be executed with bullets dipped in pig's blood, hours after a deadly terror attack in Barcelona, Spain. "Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught," Trump tweeted Thursday afternoon. "There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!" Trump’s tweet referenced a dubious story about US Army General John Pershing’s handling of Muslim prisoners during the Moro Rebellion (1899–1913) in the Philippines. The rebellion was an armed ...

Saudis are after the Muslim brotherhood, and Turkey’s in the way

1396/4/17 | 04:25
    To listen to Donald Trump, speaking during his recent trip there, the Middle East splits neatly into opposing camps and it’s obvious which one harbors the good guys.   It didn’t take long for that notion to be publicly debunked. Within a couple of weeks of the president’s departure, a crisis over the Gulf state of Qatar had U.S. allies at loggerheads.     An alliance led by Saudi Arabia apparently enjoys Trump’s full support. And a second bloc looser and harder to classify, is at the heart of the dispute ...

Fazlur Rehman's advice to Kingdom:The United States fights Islam, not terrorism

1396/4/13 | 04:25
Head of Pakistan's Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam has stressed the war that the United States launched in the region under the pretext of fighting terrorism is actually against Islam and Muslims.   “Islamic countries should know that the United States intends to defame the face of Islam and Islamic States, not fighting terrorism,” Maulana Fazlur Rehman said yesterday in Islamabad, capital of Pakistan. Head of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam added Saudi Arabia should cut off relations with the United States and expand ties with Islamic world, because US ...

Muslims in Iceland fasting for 22 hours a fast

1396/3/23 | 04:25
    Short nights closer to the North Pole means that some Muslims in Iceland’s capital Reykjavik are fasting for nearly 22 hours during Ramadan, according to a local imam.   The north Atlantic island has around 1,500 Muslim residents and those observing Ramadan begin fasting at around 2 a.m. local time and do not sit down to their evening iftar meal until around midnight.   “Although the hours are long, the Muslims here do not feel it because they come together here,” Abdul-Aziz Ulvani, the imam at the Islamic ...

Muslims in New Delhi rally in protest against the crimes of Al-Khalifa and Al-Saud

1396/3/12 | 04:25
Indian Muslims, who were fasting, have gathered in front of the UN headquarters in New Delhi in protest the crimes of Al-Khalifa and Al-Saud for Killing people in Bahrain and Yemen.   According to reports from New Delhi, demonstrators chanted slogans like death to Al Khalifa, death to Al-Saud, death to America and Israel. They stressed Bahraini and Saudi security forces must stop the aggression. They declared that these actions promote sectarianism and violence in Muslim countries. Demonstrators showed their anger and hatred of committed ...

The conference of shame and disgrace

1396/3/3 | 04:25
The enemy of Islam and hater of Muslims visited the land of Prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him), the prophet of Islam, and the land of the two holy mosques, to publically wage his war on Islam and Muslims in the company of the presidents, kings and emirs of Muslim countries who he drove, like cattle, from their countries. The man, who vowed, before his voters before the elections, to milk the cow until it goes dry and then kill it, referring to Saudi Arabia, visited the country. This American President, Donald Trump, who pledged, before the ...

Report documents evidence of attacks on Rohingya

1396/2/31 | 04:25
    A Rohingya advocacy group urged the government of Myanmar on Tuesday to cooperate with a UN fact-finding mission as it presents new evidence of attacks against Muslim civilians in western Rakhine state.   The London-based Burmese Rohingya Organization U.K. (BROUK) published a new report that contains evidence Rohingya have been targeted in an organized manner by state forces in northern Rakhine state during military operations since last October. “What is new about the material contained in this report is that it ...

Joke to the Muslims: Trump a servant of Allah, according to Saudi cleric

1396/2/17 | 04:25
A Saudi cleric has found himself in hot water after he publicly made a prayer for 'servant of Allah' Donald Trump to advance the interests of Muslims.   Saad bin Ghoniem said on Friday that he hoped God would take Trump under his wing and steer him in the right direction towards ending injustice against Muslims, prompting an online backlash.   "O Allah, Trump is one of your servants, you control him and his fate. Command him - willingly or not - to serve the best interests of Muslims and eliminate oppression done to them. Spare ...

Ibn Taymiyyah and 428 fatwa entitled “kill him/her if he did not repent”

1396/2/17 | 04:25
The school of thought that is the origin of the culture of hate and blind fanaticism among Muslims. The school of thought that is source of bleeding and brutal murder among Muslims and the pretext under which the most heinous crimes of history are being committed. Many believe it is not a good time to exhume the bodies, we must work towards the unity and avoid doing things that cause discord. This united community looks like to be without any disadvantages. It turns out that these murders and killings do not exist in the outside world and it ...

Trump’s Muslim ban: Obstinacy or Islamophobia?

1395/12/20 | 04:25
  States’ attorneys general, civil liberties groups and others are already lining up to challenge President Donald Trump’s revised ban on refugees and travelers from six mainly Muslim countries.   But can they succeed in overturning a measure that was deliberately crafted to remove the red flags raised by US courts over the first attempt? That may be more difficult.   The White House has rolled out a process that aims to avoid a repeat of the confusion caused by its first travel ban, imposed with no notice and little preparation ...

Quebec mosque attack: Was it a warning to Canada for accepting Muslims migrants?

1395/11/14 | 04:25
    At least six people were killed at the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Centre during evening prayers.      As usual, some authorities were slow to label this a ‘terrorist attack’ but the sincere Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau aptly called it so.     It is a tragedy that Canada, a country lauded for its peaceful dealings with immigrants and Muslims, despite some recent opposition in the recent past, has had to bear the Quebec mosque incident.   It seems that Trump’s hate policies are ...

Unleashed violence: A brief history of Burma’s atrocities against Muslims

1395/11/8 | 04:25
  The Burmese Muslims are facing tough times and their plight is terrible. They are being killed overtly without any reason.   They cannot get citizenship of Myanmar under the Citizenship Act of Burma 1982; their children cannot get admission to any school and even worse is that they cannot marry without the permission of the government.     The root cause of this scenario owes its origins to the Second World War when in 1941 Japan attacked Burma, where the Burmese Muslims supported Britain. Since then the Burmese Muslims ...

Nefarious designs: How Hilary Clinton planned the world war III

1395/11/5 | 04:25
  During their elections campaigns, Trump was considered more notorious for his biased and bigoted statements about Muslims and his extremist views about the world while Hilary Clinton was portrayed altogether different.   However things are not as they were portrayed. Infact during her election campaign Hilary Clinton had vowed that she will attack Iran if elected.     Given her track record in Libya, including famously being the architect behind overthrowing Libya such a position even raised more concerns.     This ...

Maligning Muslims: War of British Media on Islam

1395/11/4 | 04:25
  In a personal campaign for fairer coverage, one man has exposed scores of articles in the British press that misrepresent Muslims or Islam.   Since undertaking the project, Miqdaad Versi, the assistant general secretary of the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB), has forced newspapers to make 20 retractions and corrections.   A further 20 are currently under investigation by the press complaints body IPSO. One story Versi corrected had appeared in the Rupert Murdoch-owned Sun last week. The tabloid ran with the headline “SUPERMARKET ...

Rise in Muslim hate: West’s deliberate attempt to malign Islamism

1395/11/2 | 04:25
  New data from researchers at California State University, San Bernardino, shows that hate crimes against American Muslims increased by 78 percent over the course of 2015. There were 257 incidents of anti-Muslim bias in 2015, compared with 154 in the previous year.     The number is second only to the surge in hate crimes following the 9/11 attacks in 2001 when 481 incidents against Muslims were reported.     Most victims of the UK hate crimes were Muslim girls and women aged from 14 to 45 in traditional Islamic dress. The perpetrators ...

A loathsome enmity: Romanian new PM rejected for pro- Assad views

1395/10/9 | 04:25
  Romania's president has rejected the left-wing Social Democrats' candidate for prime minister, Sevil Shhaideh, who would have been the EU nation’s first female and Muslim prime minister.     The PSD, which has yet to comment on the issue, had put forward Shhaideh after its sweeping election victory on December 11 when it won 45 percent of the vote.   The website HotNews cited unnamed sources as saying the security services had “strongly cautioned” against Shhaideh’s nomination because of the closeness to the Assad regime ...

Trump’s first Salvo: What does Muslim registry mean for US Muslims

1395/10/3 | 04:25
    Tech giants Microsoft and IBM have said they would refuse to help create a registry of Muslim Americans under Donald Trump's presidency.     Mr Trump has previously discussed a potential religion-based register during the campaign.     Hundreds of individual workers from Silicon Valley and beyond have also signed a pledge on to say they would refuse to work on building a religious registry.     Concerns over a possible database of Muslims focused on a discussion between Trump ...

Alarming situation: Why Muslim refugees are rapidly converting into Christianity?

1395/9/21 | 04:25
    Across Germany small numbers of Muslim refugees are being baptized. But the reasons for why they change their faith are complicated.   Thousands of Muslim migrants are converting to Christianity after they arrive in Europe, raising concerns they are being carried out in a cynical attempt to gain asylum.   Muslim refugees have recently been taking the same step throughout Germany, where nearly 900,000 asylum seekers arrived in 2015. Church leaders have confirmed a notable, though not huge, trend upward, but have not ...

Trump’s security adviser: A real threat to Muslims and Islam

1395/9/4 | 04:25
  US president-elect Donald Trump famously said in a CNN interview last March that “Islam hates us.” In this light, his pick for national secuirty adviser is pitch perfect. etired lieutenant general Michael Flynn served as Trump’s national security adviser during the campaign and agreed Friday to continue on. Flynn, a registered Democrat, served as head of the US Defense Intelligence Agency before he was ousted in 2014. Since then, he’s been a brash critic of President Barack Obama and the national security establishment’s ...

The new man in White House: Is All Good for Muslim World?

1395/8/24 | 04:25
American Muslims and Arab-Americans woke up Wednesday morning with shock, fear, and a determination to tackle head-on the bigotry that helped propel Donald Trump to the White House. This election has managed to cram all the Islamophobic sentiments of the last 15 years into the span of 15 months, and then morph them into one ugly thing. Donald Trump is largely to blame. He called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims” entering the country until it became clear that the proposal was embarrassingly ill-conceived, only to be replaced by ...

Italy’s Islamophobia: Increasing discrimination against Muslims

1395/8/7 | 04:25
  Several hundred Muslims staged a protest prayer outside the Colosseum in Rome on Friday over what they see as unfair restrictions on their freedom to practise their faith in Italy. Organisers said they had called the demonstration following the recent closure on administrative grounds of five makeshift mosques. Many Italian Muslims suspect local authorities are responding to a climate of mistrust caused by recent Islamist attacks in Europe by closing down the places of worship on the grounds of easily resolved problems such as the number ...

Positive overtures or diplomatic move: Pakistan to attend moot in India

1395/8/7 | 04:25
 Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has confirmed that Pakistan will be attending the upcoming Heart of Asia conference scheduled to be held in India.

An overturned ban: Can France compensate the damage done?

1395/6/9 | 04:25
 After a month of intense national scandal and heightened international outrage, France’s highest administrative court, the Conseil d’État, on Friday overturned the burkini ban in a coastal area of the south of France. Imposed in the name of secularism, perhaps France’s most sacred ideal, the highly controversial burkini bans — currently affecting 25 French towns and cities besides Villeneuve-Loubet, which the court primarily addressed — prohibit Muslim women from wearing full-bodied bathing suits designed to respect traditional ...

Pushing against the wall: Discriminating Muslims can be dangerous

1395/5/28 | 04:25
Halal supermarket in a Paris suburb has been told by local authorities it must start selling alcohol and pork or else it will be shut down. Good Price discount mini-market in Colombes has been told by the local housing authority, from which it rents its premises, that it has not followed the conditions on the lease that stipulate that the shop must act as a "general food store." The authority argues that all members of the local community are not being served properly if there are no alcohol or pork products in the Good Price store, which is run ...

Rising Xenophobia: A shrinking world for the Muslims

1395/4/23 | 04:25
  U.S. President Barack Obama called on Americans to "recommit" to protecting Muslim Americans against bigotry and xenophobia ."Muslim Americans are as diverse as our nation itself - black, white, Latino, Asian, and Arab.  He noted that that this past month the U.S. and the world endured heart breaking “challenges and senseless violence,” when “hundreds of innocent lives, many of them Muslim” were taken in places like Orlando, Istanbul, Dhaka, Baghdad, and Medina. "Here at home, we’ve also seen a rise in attacks against Muslim ...

The myth of ban on fasting: Is Western media propagating against China?

1395/3/22 | 04:25
 The Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region (Xinjiang for short) is located in northwest China where Muslims are in majority. For thousands of years it has been a multi-ethnic region of multiple religions. At present, the major religions in Xinjiang are Islam, Buddhism, Protestantism, Catholicism and Taoism. When contacted, a Chinese government official brushed aside the notion of fasting ban for Muslims, terming it a propaganda campaign to hurt the image of China among Muslims. “There is nothing new in this propaganda campaign. Every year with ...

French Bigotry: Restrictions on Muslims can lead to another disaster

1395/2/15 | 04:25
 A Muslim prayer hall was seriously damaged by fire overnight in the capital of the French island of Corsica, local authorities said, four months after a separate Muslim prayer hall there was ransacked. No one was injured in the fire in Ajaccio, which police are investigating as criminal after finding two separate sources of fire inside the hall. "This is unacceptable," Ajaccio mayor Laurent Marcangeli told iTELE newschannel. "Those sites are not sufficiently protected." In late December, the island was rocked by days of racial tension after ...

 Muslim bashing: Trump victory a poisoned atmosphere for the Muslim world

1395/1/30 | 04:25
 The man planning to shred a holy Quran and a picture of the Prophet Muhammad during an armed rally in Georgia this Monday has a favorite presidential candidate.  “I support Donald Trump because I like his agenda on dealing with the threats to this country — his ban on Islamic immigration,” Jim Stachowiak told The Huffington Post over the phone Tuesday, adding that Muslim immigrants and refugees to the U.S. are “no more than an invading horde or army.” Stachowiak is the organizer behind the “United against Islam and Islamic ...

Washing the feet: Why does not Pope offer asylum to migrants?

1395/1/10 | 04:25
Pope Francis washed and kissed the feet of Muslim, Christian and Hindu refugees as a 'gesture of brotherhood'. The Pope denounced Tuesday’s terrorist attacks in Brussels as a “gesture of war” during an Easter week mass with asylum-seekers at a shelter outside Rome yesterday. The Holy Thursday rite re-enacts the foot-washing ritual Jesus performed on his apostles before being crucified, and is meant as a gesture of service.  The Pontiff contrasted that gesture with the “gesture of destruction” carried out by the Brussels attackers, ...

Muslims are the new appointed enemies – but whose agenda is it really serving?

1394/12/10 | 04:25
SHAFAQNA –  America’s largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization CAIR posted a photo of racist epithets spray painted on the brick wall of the Islamic Society of North America headquarters in Plainfield, Indiana this weekend.The ISNA reported the incident immediately to local police and the FBI, calling it a hate crime, WTTV reported.An ISNA spokesperson said that the vandalism was discovered at approximately 6:45 a.m. Sunday morning and that there were people inside the building when it occurred but no one saw it happening. ...

Obama's new political gimmick: Would Muslims trust republican anymore?

1394/11/18 | 04:25
US President Barack Obama on Wednesday slammed what he called “inexcusable” anti-Muslim rhetoric in the political sphere — a veiled jibe at Republican White House hopeful Donald Trump and others. “Recently we’ve heard inexcusable political rhetoric against Muslim-Americans that has no place in our country,” Obama told the members of the Islamic Society of Baltimore during his first visit to a US mosque while in office. He lauded Muslim-Americans who were sports heroes, entrepreneurs and the architect behind the skyscrapers of Chicago. ...

A nefarious design: Muslim world at risk if Trump wins

1394/10/24 | 04:25
  Donald Trump has Muslim friends, so don't try to tell him he's a racist. During his Wednesday appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, he defended his recent call to prohibit Muslims from entering the United States as a means of preventing terrorist attacks, adding that his multitudes of Muslims friends largely agreed with his plan. "I actually have many, many friends who are Muslim, and they're great people, and they actually — some of them, not all of them; I will tell you, some of them are not so thrilled with what I said, but many ...

No relief for Muslims: Muslim’s Genocide to continue under Aung San Suu Kyi regime

1394/10/23 | 04:25
 Win Mya Mya has given everything for Aung San Suu Kyi and her party – including the use of her left hand. Drawing back the thin sleeve of her purple silk shirt, she reveals a disfigured appendage that gives her near-constant pain. “She can’t even use it in the bathroom,” her sister says. The wound dates back to 2003 when Win Mya Mya was part of a Suu Kyi convoy attacked by a mob sponsored by the former ruling military junta. Scores of people were killed. She spent years in jail and her family’s shop was seized. “I would die ...

Panacea of Muslim’s problems: Rouhani rightly calls the shot

1394/10/9 | 04:25
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that Muslims must improve the image of their religion, which has been tarnished by the violence of hardline groups such as Islamic State, "It is our greatest duty today to correct the image of Islam in world public opinion," Rouhani told a conference on Islamic unity in Tehran in a speech broadcast by state television.His remarks were rare for a leader of Iran, which considers itself an authority in the Islamic world and often blames the "enemies" of the religion for problems in the Middle East. "Did ...

Is Netanyahu better than Donald Trump?

1394/9/25 | 04:25
 Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that he rejects Donald Trump’s call for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. “The state of Israel respects all religion and strictly adheres to the rights of all its citizens,” he said in a statement.“At the same time, Israel is fighting radical Islam which is attacking Muslims, Christians and Jews alike and threatens the entire world,” Netanyahu added. Netanyahu’s office also revealed Wednesday that he is not cancelling his huddle with the GOP presidential front-runner later ...

Is it a time to call Trump a terrorist?

1394/9/21 | 04:25
 Donald Trump's entire presidential campaign is about race. He launched his campaign with an argument over whether all Mexican immigrants were rapists and murderers, or merely most of them. He's maintained his relevancy through fall by replacing Latinos with Muslims as the villains of his campaign narrative — including a call to ban them from entering the US. It might be easy to write this off as pandering to the segment of America who feels threatened by ethnic difference. But it's not as if Donald J. Trump was a paragon of multiculturalism ...

Bashing Muslims: Is California incident result of US anti-Islam policies?

1394/9/17 | 04:25
Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Sunday referring to the recent shooting in California said that the act of an individual does not represent a country or religion and added that every Pakistani who has a heart and has some understanding will condemn the incident. Nisar termed the shooting as an attempt to malign Islam and Muslims and said that 'such incidents are making life difficult for Pakistan and Muslim diaspora'. "The wrongdoing of an individual Muslim or Pakistani does not mean the entire country or religion is at fault." "The ...

Social media double standards:  Is the blood of Muslims inferior than Westerns?

1394/9/13 | 04:25
 Facebook has faced criticism for creating a tool to overlay the colours of the French flag — and only the French flag — on one's profile picture after last week's attacks in Paris. Some users pointed out that previous deadly ISIS attacks on civilians in Beirut and Baghdad didn't prompt similar tools to overlay the flags of those countries on their selfies. "Certainly the criticis communication at the University of Toronto.  "The number of people that pointed out this discrepancy, that it was about a Eurocentric, or more broadly, ...

“For no one the heavens wept for forty days save Yahya and Hussain”

1394/7/29 | 04:25
As Muslims around the world are once more coming together to commemorate the tragedy of Karbala and the sacrifice of Imam Husayn (AS), it is important we remember those lessons, the Prophet’s progeny sought to teach humanity  – opening a path of light onto those who otherwise would continue to be lost in the darkness.Today I feel we fail to grasp the universality of Imam Husayn’s bravery, his absolute devotion to the Word of God and the stand he made, not for himself or his family, but for mankind. As his body was pierced with a thousand ...

Israeli barbarism: Jewish state violating the sanctity of Muslim’s holy sites

1394/7/25 | 04:25
